I am very excited to announce that I will be attending and speaking at the 2012 NCCL Conference in San Diego! I’ll be speaking at two sessions of the conference:
- Embrace New Methods (Tuesday, May 8 at 9:10a): This TED-style keynote address will focus on adapting our catechetical methods in an information-based society.
- Resistance is Futile: The Catechetical Benefits of Being Assimilated by the Digital Culture (Tuesday, May 8 at 3:30p): In this learning session I will expand on the theme of my keynote by asking the question “How is the information revolution changing expectations of catechesis and catechetical leaders?” I will also examine five trends in the “digital culture” and how they may help parishes support adult faith formation.
In addition to these events I will also be attending the National Association of Catechetical Media Professionals (NACMP) session the morning of May 6 and hosting a Catholic Tweet-Up at 9p on May 8. (More information on the Tweet-Up will be posted next month.)
If you’ll be at the conference be sure and stop me to say hello!
